I'll be teaching a two day workshop at The British Library this December called All That Glitters: Decorative Capital Letters Masterclass, aligned with their new exhibition, Fantasy: Realms of Imagination.
I'm showcasing a few of my own decorative capital letters here, they're inspired by some of my favourite fantasy books and themes and created using a mixture of gilding, watercolour, gouache and pen and ink techniques - all of which I'll demonstrate at the workshop.
I'll continue to add more of my gilded letters here as I create them, if you'd like to see me working on the Vasilisa's Skull-Lantern, you can find the videos in the dedicated post.
For more information about the workshop, see the post in my Journal folder or follow the link above for booking details.
